Re: How to remove the front fog lights-DIY


First is the above process the same for a 2011 Series 4 but in reverse to fit a set of fog lights.Also is their somewhere cheaper like our shop to purchase a set of fogs as i phoned the dealers and the cost is $234 and to fit $265.Why does it take 3 hrs labour for a dealer to fit them it must be difficult?
Cheers

Re:


The DIY Guide was put in place for the T30 models, but I can't see it being that much different for the T31 models. You don't need to have the dealer fit the fog lights for you at all, so save your money and do it yourself. The wiring is all there for you to connect to and all you need to do is swap the steering stalk switch with the one supplied by Nissan that has the fog light control.

You won't find a cheaper set of genuine Nissan fog lights than those being sold by the dealers, the biggest savings come from not having the dealer fit them for you.

Re:


Thanks for the awesome write up here about installing the fog lamps.
I ended up getting them from Steve Jarvin Nissan here in Sydney for $195. There is an ebay listing from them for these.

My experiences were a little different (maybe I did this whole thing wrong with the underside panel). The three screws on each side that hold the panel in place under the fog lamps came off easy but the panel itself is by far not small OR easy to come off (actually it never came off). It has to be twisted and turned and then also the underside edges of the front bumper need to be pulled a bit. Finally I had some space to put my hand in.
The blanks were easy to pop off. The real trouble was putting the screw in the back of the right hand side fog lamp. There is a huge plastic tank right behind the fog lamp plastic holder. Just about enough space to put your hand in straight, but after that it gets real tight to put the screw in. I wish there was some other way (lol, unless there is and I am an idiot).
The steering stalk switch was a breeze to put in.

And since the battery was disconnected (it says to do this with the instructions that came with the lamps) I had to do the 20 sec trick with the drivers side window to get it to do the AUTO UP thingy.

All in all a fun hour or so. Saved me some big dollars.

Thanks all
